Eli is a cop from Philly, and he needs a vacation. So, he visits an old friend, Mick, who has relocated to Barbados. As soon as Eli arrives, he is lounging in his bedroom, when suddenly he hears the most exotic voice singing. He just has to know where it’s coming from. As Eli walks down the beach, he eventually finds the woman singing, and is absolutely struck by her beauty, and when she leaves, he gives chase.

Day after day, Eli looks for the mysterious, yet beautiful woman, and each day he continues being unable to find her. He asks his friend Mick about her, but Mick has never heard of or seen such a woman. On the other hand, Mick’s wife, Jewel, is reminded of a local island legend. She tells Eli of a tribe of people, known as Baqeu, who are said to live in hidden caves around the island. At the end of the island legend, Eli finds out that the woman’s name is Alison.

That same evening, as Eli is heading home from a walk along the beach, he catches a glimmer in the trees. Then, catches a glance of black hair. As he catches up to her, he is more than surprised when she kisses him. Then, she leads him into the sea, to reveal much more to Eli...

But far underwater, things begin to heat up between Alison and Eli, and Eli just can’t seem to get enough of Alison…

Dahlia Rose is a fantastic writer, and she definitely will not disappoint any readers when they feast their eyes and minds on Caribbean Blue. The storyline is exceptionally strong, and even though Caribbean Blue is a novella, Dahlia Rose has a way of never making the reader feel rushed while reading. While there is some mystery with the island girl, Alison, the characters and the relationship between Alison and Eli is very real. Dahlia Rose definitely has a knack for writing, and an even greater ability to create such a real, yet enticingly erotic story, such as Caribbean Blue!
